From what I read, the reason they are so expensive is they come from Lord Howe Island near Australia where collection is illegal except for research and there is only 1 person breeding them. Notice they are tank raised.

I bet they defecate golden orbs that dissolve and make algae fizzle away. Think an acclimation gnome is included?

I think it's plutonium orbs that purify the water so no water changes are ever needed.

I bet with a little Photoshop work, I can make my clarkii clowns look just like them.
